Located in the heart of Gunnison, this quiet, exceptionally clean residential hostel feels like coming home. Perfect for groups, families, couples, or solo travelers. Our facility offers a large communal kitchen, living space, backyard, and both private & shared rooms.
The Wanderlust Hostel is only 28 miles from Crested Butte, and minutes from downtown Gunnison. Hop on the free bus a block away and head up to CB for some great food, skiing, and shopping, or grab a hostel bike and cruise Gunnison.
Here at the hostel you will find everything you need to know about this amazing area, plus everything you need to make your stay an enjoyable one. We are truly "a bed between adventures."

Meet The Team
Super senior at Colorado State University! Studying Natural Resource Tourism and just enjoying life. Colorado native and intern at the Wanderlust. I love reading, hiking, swimming, traveling, and camping. My favorite book series right now are The Stormlight Archives and A Song of Ice and Fire. I have a tattoo of my favorite campground and my birthday is on Halloween! Find me in the park doing yoga, or at Hartman Rocks hiking, and listening to true crime podcasts. The easiest way to my heart is free food.
Hi all! My name is Sara and I am an enthusiastic Colorado native with a strong passion for wildlife conservation, a true love for the outdoors, and an adventure-seeking spirit. I have volunteered around the world spending many months with a wildlife. I have proudly come to the realization that wildlife conservation, focusing on rehabilitation and release, is my true passion in life. Having spent so much time abroad, I've decided to slow down and settle in Gunnison for a while to be apart of this amazing hostel community. I could not be happier to be living in my home state again and love being at the Wanderlust!
